Help in Recovering Maximum Compensation

The caring, experienced attorneys at Rosenbaum & Rosenbaum can help you seek the compensation you need to cover the long term costs of a serious injury, including:

  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational rehabilitation
  • Psychological counseling
  • Home and vehicle modifications
  • Necessary mobility devices, wheelchairs or scooters
  • Lost wages and decreased earning potential
  • Future medical expenses
  • In-home or nursing care, if necessary

We also handle cases of severe, disabling back and neck injury, including herniated and ruptured discs, subluxation injuries and any back or neck injury requiring spinal fusion or another surgical procedure.

Paralysis

A back injury resulting in paralysis or quadriplegia will change the lives of the victim and surrounding family members forever. An entire social and family network will need to conform to caring for the injured person for a lifetime.

The cost of medical care and treatment for paralysis extends well beyond the cost of immediate hospitalization. The patient will require extended physical and occupational therapy, continued medical care, transportation needs and assistive devices. Settlements and jury awards for lawsuits involving paralysis are significant because the financial needs are so great, not only to compensate the victim for lost mobility, but for life-care needs for the entire family.

Recovering Full & Fair Money for Paralysis Injuries

Rosenbaum & Rosenbaum, P.C., has a successful record of recovering full and fair money damages for paralysis and other types of catastrophic spinal injuries in many types of personal injury accident claims, including compensation from:

  • Negligent drivers who disobeyed traffic laws, drunk drivers
  • Negligent property owners who failed to provide for the safety of visitors on their property
  • Doctors, surgeons and health care professionals whose medical negligence resulted in paralysis of nerve or muscle, bone damage or spinal cord injury

Compartment Syndrome

Compartment syndrome results when the nerves in an entire section of the body die from excessive pressure over a prolonged period of time. Paralysis victims are especially susceptible to the condition if they are not treated properly during initial hospital recovery. If the doctor or physical rehabilitation specialist fails to ensure the body is rotated and moved to relieve pressure, serious and prolonged injury and nerve damage can result.

We focus on recovering compensation you will need for a lifetime of care, including:

  • Ongoing surgeries and medical treatment
  • Personal care assistance
  • Medical equipment for occupational and transportation needs
  • Physical therapy and life skills training
  • Job skills retraining if possible
  • Psychotherapy to handle psychological trauma/emotional depression
